I gently remind my friend that, “We all have our demons.”
I hope it makes her feel better.
Today I’m going to share my demon. Actually- it was a decade that, for the most part, I wouldn’t want to relive.
You know what though? It brought me to where I am today. Now in my mid-30s I can say I am confident and happy with who I am. Do I have stuff I want to work on? Yes, totally.
Need an example? I’ve owned this blog since January of 2015 and have written less than 365 posts (including add ons from a previous blog). Definitively something I need to fix!
The thing is-this and other things I need to fix- doesn’t define me. I am amazing.
I just wish I could have seen it in my 20s. It would have changed so much in my personal and professional life.
To those of you that I hurt- my family (immediate and further comes to mind the most) and friends- I’m sorry.
That being said, this is my last sorry. I can spend my life regretting ten years or I can learn from it and move on, enjoying the rest of my life and making the best of it. These ten years need their place in my story but we all need to turn the page.
Over the next couple of days/months/years, I want to share with you all the darker parts of my years and the good that did come from it. Our two beautiful girls and some good experiences.
I may share the ugly parts, I may not and that’s okay too.
At this point I wanted to share a line from the song “This is me” off of the Greatest Showman but you know what? The whole song fits, so enjoy!
